I like the tip surface of the Signature Monad followed by the Powerslave but I prefer the bell of the Powerslave so that may be my overall winner. Really surprised how much I dislike the Aquiles Priester signature ride considering how much I like him as a drummer. Maybe it sounds better when it’s in a mix with other instruments?

Haha, I think the same. By itself that 18" Aquiles ride sounds like a joke. But if mixed right (like every Aquiles video on his channel) it sounds really cool.

I used that particular ride on my first Crystal Viper tour, and I thought it sounded AMAZING in a live setting.

If you fast forward to 1:23:27 in this video you can hear how massive the bell sounds in a live room :lol:

Actually this is the best reason I like it in live settings = it's small and light enough to fit flight luggage but you get that huge bell to smash the audience eardrums with.
